>I Like a Challenge


I think I’d make Kendi and Bryan proud with my photo shoot location today. When C and I were scouting {so official, eh?} around the buildings around the shop this afternoon, I spotted this palette leaning up against a wall, squealed and likely overreacted about its presence, and the rest is history. 
Speaking of Kendi, she just sounded the alarm for the winter edition of the 30 for 30. Since I just finished the fall version about three weeks ago, I was on the fence about whether or not I’m going to play this round. I had such a hard time with the last remix, I really didn’t know if I was ready to “get back on the horse,” if you will. However, after [not so very] much debate, I’ve decided I’m in. More on that later…

  1. >I just just finished my 30 for 30 posts, so I also have mixed feelings about doing this round of it. Aaaand wound up signing up- glad to see I'm not the only one going through this thought process!

  2. >I really need to start scouting photo locations. I also really could use a photographer….oh the dilemma's of the style blogger. Glad to hear you're doing the challenge again. I don't think I can resist either.

  3. >hmmm..I'm definitley going to pass this round of 30 for 30. It just takes me way longer than 30 days to complete them! haha!! But good luck to you!! I'll have fun check out everyone else's outfits.

  4. >We both totally wore red flats today. Yours are shiner than mine, and therefore I am jealous. I would totally pose by that palette if I could, too! I think I'm gonna do the remix too….if only to keep myself from shopping!

  5. >You look SO cute! I love the cuffed jeans, the belted scarf and how your shoes pop against the background. You look awesome!I've never done a 30 for 30 so I think I might be in for this one…

  6. >Hey I'm a newbie to the 30X30 and was thinking about joinin' up! I'm kinda terrified that I'll run out of ideas tho haha. By the way, I have my bangs cut just like yours, except they don't look as.. full/messy (love that look) do you use any special products on them?

  7. >I'm in, too. I finished the previous one in early December, but it still feels so soon. Although I have a feeling that the more we do, the better we get! This time around I'm going to do what you did last time – plan 29 items and save one to break in case of emergency!

  8. >I'm thinking SERIOUSLY about doing the 30 for 30 this time. February in Chicago is pretty steady in terms of weather (read: shitty), so I shouldn't have too many surprises. Hm…Also, LOVE these red flats!

  9. >Great Location! I too decided to do the winter 30 for 30. I sucked at the last one. Hopefully I make better choices this time round. Loving your ballet flats btw. Carlahttp://wwwsimplybubblelicious.blogspot.com/

  10. >I love this outfit – it looks great on you and the shoes are tres cute. The way you've folded the belt over is a great touch, too!xo,Carrie

  11. >Hey and ps – have you entered for those Minnetonka boots yet? If you haven't (and want to) please do! The winner gets a choice of boots or shoes and they are com-fy! :)

  12. >ahh I totally thought of Kendi when I saw the first photo load! I'm signed up for the 30×30, but I finished the last round in Dec. Maybe give yourself some time to enjoy the rest of your wardrobe? Or start late?

  13. >aah! i've been searching for red flats just like yours! love. no, seriously. LOVE. i like them paired with the drapey shirt, and they're perfect for the effortless chic vibe of this entire ensemble.-brittneyhttp://adayinlifetoo.blogspot.com

  14. >I love the belted scarf and fun shoes! And I'm trying to decide whether to join the 30 for 30 this time. I did it this summer, and I think I'm due for another go-round. The fact that you're doing it after you just recently finished is motivation!!
